Open Sources (Ep. #315) Show Notes for February 25, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we will wrap up the month with a multifaceted discussion that will take us from the present, to the future, and back to the past. We will look at the contentious debate about a certain Conservative motion this week, and we will look at the provincial conservatives move to… protect the environment? In the back half, we’re talking again about Facebook’s world takeover, and we’ll remember a notable bit of Canadian political history.

Open Sources (Ep. #312) Show Notes for February 4, 2021

This week’s Open Sources Guelph has a lot of ground to cover, which is weird because there’s not much we can do about foreign travel with new Federal government restrictions. So we’re not going anywhere, but we will be talking about the coup in Myanmar along with those new travel restrictions. In the back half, our featured guest will be the former environmental commissioner who’s got a tough appraisal of the green record of the provincial government.

It’s another busy week here in the Open Sources Guelph newsroom. We’ve got environmental stuff on the go with talk about the carbon tax and the small matter of a million species dying out.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 22, 2018

This Open Sources Guelph is going to be a dire one. We’re going to talk about Brexit, which is going about as well as everyone expected. We’re going to talk about sex abuse, which seemed to have been baked into the culture of a prestigious Toronto school. We’re going to talk about the lack of support for trans rights in the governing PC Party. And we’re going to talk about our country’s environmental failures. Hold on to your butts.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 23, 2018

This week on Open Sources Guelph we go where the people are, and they are all over the place. Officials from cities across Ontario and the provincial government met in Ottawa for AMO, and we’ll talk about how that went. Also, the federal Conservatives are meeting in Halifax, and that’s just getting started. In the second half of the show, we’ll talk about the environment, matters of heatwaves and plastic taxes.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 9, 2017

This week on Open Sources Guelph, more bad news. The rich are getting richer by not playing by the rules and we once again have the papers to prove it. The government is attacking walkers because a few of them are looking at their phones rather than the sidewalk, which isn’t great, but hardly where the problem lies. But at the end of the day, what does any of this matter, because it turns out more of us are being killed by pollution than pestilence, famine, and all the other horsemen combined. But a very progressive positive rookie has just been elected in Montreal, so we’ve got that going for us, which is nice. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 9, 2017”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 8, 2017

This week on Open Sources Guelph we go around the world! Not literally, of course, and mostly in North America and the U.K., but what we’re saying is that there are world wide implications. From someone that might be the Prime Minister of Canada if he can get his party’s leadership, to a contest to determine who the leader of the United Kingdom will be, to a guy once called the “Leader of the Free World” but seems not even remotely interested in being a leader in his own house. Politics, elections, the environment and terror are all on the docket for this week’s show.  Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 8, 2017”
